High profile implants will not improve 'torpedo' shape

Breast shape is not always based on implants.
A breast augmentation will increase breast volume, but often times does little to change the overall shape of the breasts. This is particularly true in cases of constricted breast deformities or "torpedo" appearing breasts. Many times, a mastopexy is necessary to create the natural "tear-drop" appearance.
Torpedo Shape Breasts after Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question.
Although difficult to give you advice without direct examination, at 6 months postop it is very likely that you are seeing the final size/shape of your breasts after breast augmentation surgery. It is possible that the breasts will look less “torpedo” like with less projecting breast implants.
If this is a concern, consult with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Breast shape after augmentation
Breast shape is predominantly determined by your skin envelope. Changing from "torpedo" to more teardrop shaped breasts may require adjustment of the skin envelope via breast lift (mastopexy).
Implants and breast shape
You do not mention whether or not your implants are saline or silicone. HP saline implants tend to a rounder look compared to HP gel implants. That having been said, implants tend to make bigger versions of what you started with so without seeing good before/after pictures it is impossible to render an opinion.
